The third fatal crash in two days in Nicollet County occurred Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 21, according to the State Patrol.
Aaron Glen Lloyd, a 23-year-old man from North Mankato, was killed in the Tuesday crash. His Chevrolet Malibu was heading westbound on Hwy. 14 between Nicollet and Courtland when an eastbound Ford Explorer, driven by Steve Paul Hess, of Chaska, reportedly crossed into the westbound lane and collided with the Chevrolet.
Lloyd was declared dead at the scene. Hess sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the Mankato hospital, according to the report.
Both drivers were reportedly wearing seat belts.
The Nicollet County Sheriff’s Office, Allina Ambulance and Courtland Fire Department assisted the State Patrol at the scene.
The crash followed two fatal crashes within Nicollet County on Monday — one at the Hwy. 14 and County Road 37 intersection, the other on Hwy. 111.
